Biden Administration Policies Cause Medicare Part D Premiums to Skyrocket for Seniors

In the latest demonstration of the Biden administration’s knack for fumbling policies that directly impact American citizens, seniors are feeling the brunt of their mismanagement. While some may argue that Joe Biden is merely a figurehead being controlled by shadowy decision-makers, it’s evident that his team’s actions are directly harming American seniors.

Premiums for Medicare Part D, a lifeline for over 50 million Americans, have skyrocketed by over 20 percent this year alone. And if current trends continue, seniors could be facing a staggering 50 percent increase by 2025. It’s clear that the Biden administration is failing to protect America’s most vulnerable, especially when compared to the common-sense policies put in place by the Trump administration.

During his time in office, President Trump introduced the Trump Rebate Rule, a measure aimed at ensuring that seniors received the benefits of rebates from drug manufacturers. This initiative was a direct effort to alleviate the financial burden on seniors struggling with expensive medications. However, the Biden administration callously abandoned this rule, siding with powerful middlemen over the needs of American seniors.

While Biden may have paid lip service to criticizing pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), his decision to backpedal on the Trump Rebate Rule speaks volumes. By repealing this rule as part of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the Biden administration has effectively chosen to prioritize funding for Chinese electric vehicles over the well-being of American seniors. This move has not only exacerbated inflation but also deprived seniors of much-needed relief.

In a stark display of misplaced priorities, the Biden administration has chosen to divert funds from Medicare to prop up Chinese companies while American seniors struggle to make ends meet. This betrayal of trust is a slap in the face to those who have contributed to the Medicare system their entire lives, expecting it to provide them with security and support in their later years.

As the Biden administration clumsily attempts to address elder abuse while simultaneously undercutting Medicare, it becomes apparent that their actions do not align with their lofty rhetoric. If Americans want to see real change and relief for seniors, they may have to look back to the policies that actually put their needs first – policies like the Trump Rebate Rule that held promise for billions in savings for those who need it most.
